#CrappyBlogger Alert – 2016 Spring Planting

Well, it’s been almost one and a half years since I have updated this blog, so I will admit it, I am a #crappyblogger.  We are going to work to change that and have at least a couple updates a month here to keep everyone updated on the happenings on the farm and in our lives on the farm.   If we fail in that endeavour, I will refer to the aforementioned hashtag and you can too!

Spring planting got off to a very dry start and the last week has brought 4.3 inches of rain.  The conditions prior to that rain were incredibly difficult to plant in and we only put in around 160 acres.  Now, with ample moisture to plant into and a weather forecast that looks favorable we plan to roll by the weekend on #plant16.

Below are a few photos from the spring here on the farm.
